For Diabetes Mellitus “Wonderful drug. Need less and have perfect even blood sugars once you are taking the correct amount.”

For Diabetes, Type 1 “This insulin is trash! Does not control sugars at all. I was at a1c of 8.2 on Humulin n and regular R taken when required. I know that’s not a great number, which is why I switched to Tresiba at my doctors advising. First batch was ok. But the last 2 batches I’ve used, I’ve experienced completely out of whack, uncontrolled, unpredictable blood glucose. Actually came here to see if maybe there had been a recall on the drug, because it doesn’t seem to be working at all. Is the revenue from the diabetic population not feeding healthcare enough? Need to pump up the economy by creating a bunch of side effects of the disease (which is actually a result of failed drugs big pharma creates).”

For Diabetes, Type 2 “I been a Type 2 for 15 years. I have been of Tresiba for 6 months. I have gained 25 lbs in the first two months of using Tresiba. I exercise daily and I watch my diet… I take Tresiba first thing in the morning… Around 60 units… My BGL readings before breakfast could be around 130 to 150… For breakfast in the morning consist of 3 eggs Bacon and a slice of Honey Wheat Bread with butter… The Carbs per slice is 13 Cards… At noon when I check my sugar levels my BGL is up over 200. I’m lost when it come to insulin. I have had serious reactions to other forms of insulin. Tresiba was my only hope and it doesn’t look good.”

For Diabetes, Type 1 “Definitely the best long-acting insulin I’ve ever taken, by far. I have been type 1 since 1991 (though I do not remember that far back because I was very young) and have been on Ultra Lente, Levemir, Lantus and Toujeo. I started taking Tresiba in late June. My A1C tanked from 7.5% in June (I destroyed my foot in April so this might really have been closer to 6.8 or 6.9% if I had been able to exercise) to 6.3% in September. I will say that I had more lows than I’d like to have early on, but it’s just an adjustment I had to make. I have far fewer 250+ readings than I have ever had, and many more periods of 8-9 hours where my blood sugar does not move at all, where it sits between 80 and 85 or such like. One week I ran an average of 102.”

For Diabetes, Type 1 “I very much wanted this insulin to be great, but as usual, the pharmaceutical companies failed again. This insulin seemed at first to eliminate the dawn phenomenon I experienced taking humulin n, lantus, levemir. But now, I can’t seem to get any balance to occur no matter what I do! It’s completely unpredictable. I’ve had a 500+ fasting blood glucose, after going asleep at a decent 140 the night before. Or wake up at 6 am at 100, take my daily dose, not eat, and be 350 by noon. The drastic blood glucose swings on this are extremely frustrating. All the money big pharma makes on this med you’d think they could improve lives, ha! Guess I’ll go back to humulin n. Lantus kills my back, and burns. Levemir gives me yeast infections.”

For Diabetes, Type 2 “I took this medication for 4 weeks. I was on Lantus prior.I got a headache which I thought would go away, however it didn’t.I became bloated and started getting flu like symptoms.Only wanted to sleep, and felt I couldn’t even walk to the mail box.I thought I was dying. I finally realized it must be the new Insulin. I stopped, and told my doctor I wanted to return to the Lantus. She agreed. I am slowly beginning to feel better, but it has been two weeks, and I’m still not back to my old self. This is a terrible drug. I also gained 6 pounds on top of everything else.How could this drug ever get approval?”
